Game Preview

What to expect when Utah has the ball: Trick plays? It worked against Wyoming and might work against the Lobos. However, I expect a ground it out style offense where the Utes continue to hand the ball off to Mack and allow him to go to work. If he can run for 100 yards, Utah should win.

What to expect when New Mexico has the ball: An offense that is fairly balanced through the air and on the ground. Rodney Ferguson is tearing it up on the ground and could flirt with 100 yards. Donovan Porterie is a threat through the air, passing for nearly 225 yards per game.

How Utah wins: Do what they've done over the past six games and enter this game with the mindset that New Mexico can win. If Utah overlooks this team, they're toast, hopefully that does not happen.

The dancin' leprechaun continues his undefeated streak!

'Twas dancing for 6-0, but now it's a jig for lucky 7!
